    I have a Verizon Samsung note 2 and the power button is not working... it wasn't a big deal until my phone died today and now I'm unable to turn it back on. Any suggestions? I've googled some solutions and tried putting it on the charger, taking it off and quickly taking out the battery and putting it back in. I've also tried holding down the volume buttons, but nothing has worked. I'm getting the phone fixed at a phone repair shop, but they will not have the part in until next week, so I just need to turn the phone on and keep it charged until I can get it repaired.

    You can keep it charged by just plugging the charger in. To turn it on you'd probably have to short the pins on the power switch - which I wouldn't recommend - one slip and you could be in for a new phone.
